Television and media production involves several complex elements that require adequate training, expertise, and experience. Many people perceive production as a straightforward task requiring little to no effort because of the hard work of actors, directors, editors, writers, and other stakeholders. However, producers are responsible for starting and developing a television show or movie project. Executive producers go one step further to develop an idea and pitch it to media and production companies to transform it into movies or television shows. Executive producers risk their reputation with projects because if a television or movie production fails, it hampers the producer’s reputation. Television production comprises generating ideas for television shows that attract and retain millions of viewers and compel them to continue watching the programs for a long time. An executive producer’s primary responsibility is to develop content that attracts viewers and generates ratings for television channels and production companies.
Television production involves several stages for completing projects that engage and captivate audiences through multiple elements. Producers must ensure they utilize intriguing plotlines and production elements to compel people to keep viewing their shows.
